The contest results were announced on June 29 at a special ceremony in Moscow held by the All-Russian noncommercial organization Business Russia. The tendering committee included representatives of the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade and the Industry Development Fund.
The annual Best Deal contest outlines companies with high level of performance per employee. With over 100 bids submitted to the contest this year, only 43 were short-listed in the final rating. Its methodology considered the number of highly efficient workplaces, organization’s type and tax regime.
The TechnoNICOL Corporation was ranked second in the final list and received the 1st Category Diploma. The Technoflex plant in Ryazan, which is one of the company’s leading production units, received the 3rd category Diploma and entered the top-20 list of companies.
TechnoNICOL demonstrates high level of performance due to effective sustainable growth in Russia and abroad and high revenue per employee figure.

This is four-fold increase as compared to the medium parameter in the field of construction materials. The performance of Technoflex plant in 2015 was as high as 26.5 mn rur per employee.
The TechnoNICOL Chief Marketing Officer Julia Safonova commented on the corporate formula for success: “The Corporation’s history started in 1992 with a small enterprise in Vyborg that produced ruberoid roofing. Today the company owns over 40 production lines and exports materials to 79 countries of the world. We never stop to improve business processes, which make our expenses lower and optimize resource management. However, the main success factor is our staff. It’s employees’ experience, knowledge, qualification and teamwork that create value for our customers”.
